Lunches May 19th - 23rd

Boogs' lunches are usually inspired by the books we read together. Story time is part of our daily bedtime routine. Boogs reads to me and then I read to him. I usually post his lunches once a week. Click on the "lunches" label at the end of this post to see lunches from previous weeks. We like to pack our lunches in ELBs and Laptop Lunchboxes.

National Geographic Kids Magazine
Scientists are trying to figure out dolphin language. This article states that each dolphin names itself. Baby dolphins play with "words" and come up with their own unique pattern of squeaks and whistles to name themselves.

In the Laptop lunchbox: almond butter & jelly dolphin sandwich, cheese waves, salami ocean, raspberry sunset horizon, salad, pineapple, and yogurt.

Momma slept in lunch
In the ELB lunchbox: ham, cheese, Pringles, veggie chips, salad, blueberries, and blackberries.

Little Lamb lunch

In the Laptop lunchbox: pb&j lamb sandwich, okra chips, raisins, Babybel cheese sun, orange slices, salad, and yogurt.

In the Laptop Lunchbox: Zbar, tomatoes, crackers, cheese, ham, and nectarine.

Mysteries, According To Humphrey by Betty G. Birney
Boogs and I love to read Humphrey books. There are twelve books in this series about a classroom pet hamster with a "lock that doesn't lock" on his cage. Humphrey has all sorts of adventures and always manages to help solve the problems of the students in his class. In this book, Humphrey must figure out what happened to the teacher, Mrs. Brisbane. He writes down clues in his notebook to try and figure out the mystery of the missing teacher. For awhile, the clues lead him to believe Mrs. Brisbane has left teaching to become a ballet dancer. Eventually, Humphrey solves the case. Boogs enjoyed trying to figure out where Mrs. Brisbane went. He knew Humphrey was wrong about Mrs. Brisbane becoming a dancer, but did not figure out what really happened to her until the end of the book.

In the ELB lunchbox: cheese Humphrey on top of almond butter & jelly sandwich, veggie straws, broccoli, radish, and berries.
